Question At home repaint

alright so through a series of unfortunate circumstances (mainly vandilism) i now have a 1 foot long mix of black paint and primer that looks like a 2 year old painting right on the front of my hood. the issue is i dont have any money to have it repainted so im forced to do a home repair. i was wondering what you guys think, i was planning on buffing it than using some ford touchup paint to cover it, i honestly have zipo body work abilities so anyhelp is greatly appreciated

heres a picture, yes i know the pony is crooked i fixed that lol, and i also got a new headlight on the way

please dont use touch up paint it never looks as good as you think it would. Sand it down wiht 400 grit paper do not go to the metal just roughen it up and go to your local napa and buy the factory paint and shoot it its not hard. pm me and ill walk you through the procedures
